...{...Yummy Soup for a Cold Day...}...

Good afternoon!  Thought I'd take a few moments to get caught up on some blogging.  First - a soup that I made last week.  It was pretty chilly here and this soup was the perfect remedy!

Of course, I tweaked the recipe from the original - but that's what cooking is really all about.  Here's the recipe to the best of my memory :-)

Chicken and Shrimp Tortilla Soup

• 3 cans chicken broth
• 2 med. zucchini - diced
• 1 tbs minced pickled garlic
• 1 tsp red pepper flakes - or more to taste
• 1 tbs ground cumin
• 1 can corn
• 1 can black beans - rinsed
• 1 red onion - diced
• 1 lg. can diced tomatoes
• 1 bag frozen raw shrimp - (pre-cooked in skillet)
• 3 cups cooked chicken - diced
• olive oil
• salt & pepper - to taste

• tortilla chips
• shredded cheese
• sour cream
• avocado - diced
• lime wedges
• jalapenos
• cilantro

Using a 6-7qt pot, heat up enough olive oil to cook your onions and zucchini. Once the oil is heated, add the onions and zucchini. Cook until onions are slightly transparent and zucchini slightly browned. Add chicken broth, garlic, cumin, red pepper flakes, corn, beans, can of tomatoes, cooked shrimp and chicken. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Serve w/ garnishes and enjoy!
